I like November. For me it is a perfect mixture of quiet, relaxing days and days filled with fun and joy. Of course I look forward to Thanksgiving at the end of the month as well as many birthdays (Troy & Lorinda turn 37 this year - I'm just sayin' is all). However, for the most part the days are "normal" - home with the family, coffee with friends.
A few days ago I shared a quote on gratitude and it seems like November is really a perfect time to really reflect on being thankful and gracious. A month to slow down and remember/reconnect with what is important. I plan on sharing some of my favorite collected quotes on gratitude and thankfulness this month and share some of what I am thankful for as well - from the big stuff (family, friends, health) to the little stuff (no red lights in B'ham -haha, coffee )...I have started many gratitude journals, you know the ones that are suppose to be filled out daily, and usually only get a few days in before I forget to fill out a day, then two...you see where this is going. So, I am hoping to document a month here. We will see.
I love this quote:
“He who can give thanks for little will always find he has enough”
Today I am thankful for: Horton who is home and healthy at this time, green tea, and my electric kettle from Starbucks.
So, to you all I wish you a wonderful November!
